Raf Simons – Spring 2014 Menswear Collection | Runway Show

By - June 27th, 2013

The apparel of Raf Simons‘ Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear Collection channels a bit of Andy Warhol through its bold colors, androgynous tailoring, and blatant injection of pop art. Advertisement logos are typed across shirts and accessories as if the models were walking bilboards– a manifestation of what social media has made us to be. Black is the foundational base of the entire line as seen through the blazers, shorts, and shoes, whereas shots of color like hot pink, lemon yellow, and classic purple are used to visually reinforce the design of the shirts. The designer’s talent is once again shown through the construction of his shirt pieces, which are oversized and extend below the waist. Overall, Simons has created a wardrobe that exhibits the austerity of an introverted schoolboy who prefers to let his clothes speak for him.
